Today: A front along with tropical moisture will lead to scattered rain chances today. Most of the rain will fall west and south of Baton Rouge, but still good chances in other parts of our viewing area. Highs will reach 90 degrees before the rain moves in. Tonight, we’ll dip into the mid-70s.
Rest of the Week: Enhanced moisture to our south over the Gulf of Mexico along with a stalled frontal boundary lingering over the area will lead to continued daily showers and thunderstorms. The farther north you are, the less you will see. Despite this, everyone has decent chances of rain each day. Grab those umbrellas! Highs will be in the upper-80s to low-90s all week.
This Weekend: Rain chances may taper off a little this weekend, but chances still remain on Saturday and Sunday.
Tracking the Tropics: A tropical wave in the open Atlantic is tracking west towards the Caribbean Sea. It has a 90% chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm in the next 5 days. For now, this is not a threat to Louisiana, but it is worth monitoring for the next 2 weeks. The same goes for another tropical wave following in its wake with a 20% chance of development in the next 5 days. Another disturbance has a chance of developing in the Gulf of Mexico (20% chance in the next 5 days) before moving onto the Texas coastline. This will most likely just cause increased daily rain chances along the Gulf coast, including here in Louisiana.
